Dating doesn’t always go as you expect; your child may need someone to come to if they have a problem.
You need to keep the lines of communication open and also reiterate to them how they should treat people and expect to be treated in a relationship.
This stage is a little more serious than talking but not quite as serious as being in a full blown relationship. When two people are “a thing,” they’re not quite single but not officially dating. Finally after a long, confusing process, the two people involved reach the final stage; dating.
Talk to your teen about what a good relationship is.While you may think your teen already knows how to date, they probably don’t.But it’s important to remember that they do still need you now and this is a normal development phase of the teen years.There are also things you can do to make dating easier for both of you.If you have taught them about a proper relationship, then you should trust them to make their own decisions.
Only intervene if you think the relationship is dangerous for your child.Once you’re done talking, set a good example in your relationship with your significant other.Once your child starts dating, don’t stop talking to them about relationships.Most parents have some fears of the day their child will start dating.It is the big sign that they’re growing up and are entering adulthood.Contrary to the shift in relationships for the current generation, it still takes the same amount of time to get into a definite relationship.
